This is another big deal for Playtech Live, following the deal with Sony Pictures for the Jumanji Franchise and Who Wants to Be A Millionaire.

Playtech will have big plans to turn Family Feud into an interactive live gameshow, and if it’s anything like Jumanji, we’re in for a treat.

Having recognisable names to draw players in seems to be a recurring theme in the gaming industry. While it’s an obvious tactic to get eyes on a game, the success will be down to how the games play and the enjoyment players get from playing them.

There have certainly been a few turkeys, but as long as Playtech sticks to the essence of what makes Family Feud popular, they can’t go far wrong.
